I spent my entire fast day on Thursday traveling from Montreal to Orlando to visit my dad and stepmom. Traveling can be a good distraction from fasting (at least I was hoping it would be).
Usually when I travel my weakness is snacking on lots of not so great food. At the airport I tried to keep myself away from the food by browsing the duty free loop. I really liked these Ray-Bans.
Before I even got to my gate I started getting messages that my flight was delayed. Delayed flights = massage chair time. Another great distraction from fasting.
My first flight ended up being so delayed that I missed my connection in Chicago creating a very long layover and late arrival in Florida. Seriously delayed flight and a missed connection = adult beverage.
After waiting over three hours for my rebooked flight, airport chaos led to another hour delay. Too many planes, not enough space or push-back crews.
I finally arrived in Orlando close to midnight. After sleeping in today and catching up with my dad and stepmom, I finally got in an afternoon workout.
I was too low energy to go to the fitness center, so I used my dad's at home resistance training system (affiliate link) and I was impressed with how many exercises I could do. One of these might end up in my suitcase when we head back to China.
○ Compound row: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
○ Superman on the mats to failure
- ○ Compound row: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
○ Dumbbell curls: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
○ Straight bar curls: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
○ Hammer curls: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
- ○ Dumbbell curls: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
○ Overhead dumbbell extension: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
○ Dumbbell tricep kickback: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
○ Cable push down with rope: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
- ○ Dips: 2 sets of 15
- ○ Overhead dumbbell extension: 2 sets of 8-10 reps
I was able to use the bands to do all of the exercise motions in the workout. A couple of them were repetitive, but I could feel my muscles burning and that's all that matters.
My dad took me to get a guest pass for the fitness center, so I will be able to go there to do my sprints next week.
What I ate (fast and regular calorie days):
Broke my fast...with the above adult beverage, a chicken quesadilla (forgot picture) and airplane pretzels. Surprisingly, I was good on calories and not far off my macros.
Breakfast: scrambled eggs and ham, pb&j toast, coffee
I enjoyed making this meal for my dad and stepmom after keeping them out so late the night before.
Lunch: turkey breast and ranch rice snacks, mt. dew
Dinner: gluten free italian sausage pasta, salad, mt. dew
My stepmom baked this for us (it's one of my favorites).
After dinner we watched a movie. I do not recommend 10 Cloverfield Lane. It's scary and then the twist in the ending is terrible.
Have you ever missed a connection?
Ever used bands to do an arm workout?
Last movie you watched?
